I want to help.

Campers need Alford Lake Camp now more than ever before. 

As we experience significant challenges at global, national and local levels, girls and young women need a safe and supportive community. 

At ALC, they can freely challenge themselves to accept new risks, engage in meaningful conversations with friends, create lifelong connections, and learn how they can make a difference in the world.

Since 1907, Alford Lake Camp has been a place where girls develop a greater sense of self-awareness, empowerment, and leadership.

The news that the 2020 camp season was suspended was heartbreaking but it was no surprise that ALC put the health and safety of its campers and staff above all else.

Unfortunately, this decision carries with it a significant financial burden.

As a tuition-dependent organization*, Alford Lake Camp’s decision to suspend programming and the resulting loss of this summer’s tuition revenue threatens its ability to deliver a full camp experience next year.

*ALC is not a 501c(3) organization and gifts are not tax-deductible.


Together, we can ensure that ALC continues to provide experiences that equip young women to become confident leaders and citizens in this ever changing world.




We always welcome your contributions to the ALC Scholarship Fund to help give the gift of camp.


At this time our need for Scholarship Funding is not as pressing as our need for contributions to the Bridge Fund. We set aside the Scholarship funds raised for 2020 and plan to use those funds for scholarship applicants in 2021. 


Your scholarship gift will be tax deductible because the Alford Lake Camp Scholarship Fund is set up in partnership with the American Camp Association, a charitable 501(c)(3) organization.

We also encourage you to spread the word about our Scholarship offerings and help families to learn about our efforts to make ALC affordable.

Please consider giving at one of our Leadership Gift levels:

❏ Blue Pine Tree: $100 - $499

❏ Red Pine Tree: $500 - $999

❏ Gold Pine Tree: $1,000 - $2,499

❏ Green Pine Tree: $2,500 - $4,999

❏ Pink Pine Tree $5,000 - $9,999

❏ Purple Pine Tree $10,000 or more
